Keep Our Home Front Strong is Volume Seventeen of the Taped Rugs "Uncooked" series of productions, which began in 2008. The performances documented here were executed by Charles Rice Goff III alone and alive in the Taped Rugs studio in Kansas City, Kansas, USA. A single camera mounted on a tripod captured material from two improvisation sessions:
1) January 8th, 2009
2) January 16th, 2009
The videos of these performances are basically unaltered, keeping with the general theme of the UNCOOKED series. Goff sets the atmosphere with some brief introductions, then dives into the abysses of the great sonic universe with gusto. Viewers are able to see how sounds are generated, manipulated, maintained, and symphonized. Electronic guitar, various guitar preparations, Micromoog synthesizer, modified toys, various sound effects, a pedal loop duplicator, and some prerecorded cassettes make up the backbone of these untraditional presentations.
